Carrick-On-Shannon Golf Club

Picture of Carrick-on-Shannon Golf Club

This was a 9 hole extension to the existing 9 hole course into a beautiful but poorly drained and environmentally complicated area of land bordering the River Boyle. Following several presentations to the members and numerous meetings with the planning authority, the extension commenced in April 2002 and despite one of Irelands wettest summers, the course opened in August 2003. My designs were essentially greens and tee complexes with the occasional fairway bunker. As with Gorstyhill GC, Carrick-on-Shannon is a testament to how golf courses can be constructed on relatively low budgets if good use of land is made.
